House Guests, House Pests A Natural History of Animals in the Home

House Guests, House Pests A Natural History of Animals in the Home

Author: Richard Jones Format: Hardback Release Date: 12/02/2015

Today we live in snug, well-furnished houses surrounded by the trappings of a civilised life. But we are not alone - we suffer a constant stream of unwanted visitors. Our houses, our food, our belongings, our very existence are under constant attack from a host of invaders eager to take advantage of our shelter, our food stores and our tasty soft furnishings. From bats in the belfry to beetles in the cellar, moths in the wardrobe and mosquitoes in the bedroom, humans cannot escape the attentions of the animal kingdom. Nature may be red in tooth and claw, but when it's our blood the bedbugs are after, when it's our cereal bowl that's littered with mouse droppings, and when it's our favourite chair that collapses due to woodworm in the legs, it really brings it home the fact that we and our homes are part of nature too. This book represents a 21st century version of the classic Mediaeval bestiary. It poses questions such as where these animals came from, can we live with them, can we get rid of them, and should we? Written in Richard Jones's engaging style and with a funky-retro design, House Guests, House Pests will be a book to treasure.

Beetles

Beetles

Author: Richard Jones Format: Paperback Release Date: 11/09/2018

`A truly excellent account' British Wildlife Beetles are arguably the most diverse organisms in the world, with nearly half a million beetle species described and catalogued in our museums, more than any other type of living thing. This astonishing species diversity is matched by a similar diversity in shape, form, size, life history, ecology, physiology and behaviour. Beetles occur everywhere, and do everything. And yet they form a clearly discrete insect group, typically characterised by their attractively compact form, with flight wings folded neatly under smooth hard wing-cases. Almost anyone could recognise a beetle, indeed many are intimately associated with human society. Groups like ladybirds are familiar to us from a very young age. Large stag beetles and handsome chafers are celebrated for their imposing size and bright colours. The sacred scarabs of the ancient Egyptians were given iconic, if not god-like, status and even though the exact religious meanings may be fading after three millennia, their bewitching jewellery and monumental statuary inspire us still. Despite this ancient and easy familiarity with beetles, the Coleoptera remains tainted by the notion that it is a `difficult' group of insects. The traditional routes into studying British natural history, through birdwatching, butterfly-collecting and pressing wild flowers, now extend to studying dragonflies, bumblebees, grasshoppers, moths, hoverflies and even shieldbugs. These are on the verge of becoming popular groups, but beetles remain the preserve of the expert, or so it seems. So many British beetles are easy to find and easy to identify by the non-expert, but that bewildering background diversity, and the daunting numbers of species in the Coleoptera as a whole, have been enough to dissuade many a potential coleopterist from grasping the nettle and getting stuck in. Richard Jones' groundbreaking New Naturalist volume on beetles encourages those enthusiasts who would otherwise be put off by the, to date, rather technical literature that has dominated the field, providing a comprehensive natural history of this fascinating and beautiful group of insects.

Mental Health Act Manual

Mental Health Act Manual

Author: Richard Jones Format: Paperback Release Date: 21/11/2017

The 20th edition of the Mental Health Act Manual is an essential guide to the Mental Health Act 1983. A crucial insight tool for any professional working in mental health law, this specialist work reproduces the Act and its associated Rules and Regulations with annotations by Richard Jones. Key developments incorporated in the 20th edition are: Case Law Secretary of State for Justice v MM; Welsh Ministers v PJ where the Court of Appeal held that that (1) the Act does not provide a power in the tribunal to impose conditions on a conditional discharge that extend to the imposition of a deprivation of liberty of a patient's liberty; and (2) a responsible clinician has the power to attach a condition to a community treatment order which constitutes a deprivation of the patient's liberty. Djaba v West London Mental Health Trust where the Court of Appeal held that a tribunal has no power to conduct a proportionality assessment pursuant to arts.5 and/or 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights taking into account the conditions of the patient's detention. Tinsley v Manchester City Council where it was held that a local authority may not have regard to the patient's ability to fund the cost of after-care services from damages awarded to him in his claim for personal injuries when determining whether or not to provide after-care services under s.117. PI v West London Mental Health NHS Trust where the Upper Tribunal considered how a tribunal should react when, during the course of a tribunal hearing, it appeared that the patient no longer had capacity to appoint or instruct his solicitor. R (on the application of Ferreira) v HM Senior Coroner for Inner South London where the Court of Appeal held that a patient in a general hospital was not deprived of her liberty because she was being treated for a physical illness and her treatment was that which would have been administered to a person who did not have her mental impairment. R. (on the application of OK) v First-tier Tribunal on the need for the Secretary of State to make a reference to the tribunal under s.67(1) where a tribunal, which is considering an application made by a solicitor on behalf of the patient, finds that the patient lacked the mental capacity to authorise another person to act on his behalf. LB v BMH where the Upper Tribunal held that the evidence placed before a tribunal should not be confined to justifying the patient's detention. It should also deal with the suitability of the regime that the patient is subject to as such information would be required if the patient's solicitor was minded to attempt to persuade the tribunal to recommend a transfer under s.72(3). Legislation Major amendments have been made to sections 135 and 136 of the Act and three new sections have been inserted by the Policing and Crime Act 2017. Guidance Legal Aid Agency guidance on Tribunal Appointed Representatives in Mental Health ('Rule 11(7) Cases') is reproduced.

Manure Matters Historical, Archaeological and Ethnographic Perspectives

Manure Matters Historical, Archaeological and Ethnographic Perspectives

Author: Richard Jones Format: Paperback Release Date: 24/05/2017

In pre-industrial societies, in which the majority of the population lived directly off the land, few issues were more important than the maintenance of soil fertility. Without access to biodegradable wastes from production processes or to synthetic agrochemicals, early farmers continuously developed strategies aimed at adding nutritional value to their fields using locally available natural materials. Manure really mattered, its collection/creation, storage, and spreading becoming major preoccupations for all agriculturalists no matter what environment they worked or at what period. This book brings together the work of a group of international scholars working on social, cultural, and economic issues relating to past manure and manuring. Contributors use textual, linguistic, archaeological, scientific and ethnographic evidence as the basis for their analyses. The scope of the papers is temporally and geographically broad; they span the Neolithic through to the modern period and cover studies from the Middle East, Britain and Atlantic Europe, and India. Together they allow us to explore the signatures that manure and manuring have left behind, and the vast range of attitudes that have surrounded both substance and activity in the past and present.

Call of Nature The Secret Life of Dung

Author: Richard Jones Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/02/2017

Journey through the digestive systems of humans, farm and wild animals, and meet some of nature's ultimate recyclers as they eat, breed in and compete for dung. The fall of bodily waste onto the ground is the start of a race against the clock as a multitude of dung-feeders and scavengers consume this rich food source. From the enigmatic dung-rolling beetles to bat guano and giant elephant droppings, dung creates a miniature ecosystem to be explored by the aspiring dung watcher. The author completes the book with an identification guide to dung itself, so that you can identify the animal that left it behind. Pellets or pats? Scats, spraints, frass, guano, spoor - learn your way around different species' droppings. There's also a dung-feeder's identification guide that includes the species you're most likely to encounter on an exploration of the dung heap.

House Guests, House Pests A Natural History of Animals in the Home

Author: Richard Jones Format: Paperback Release Date: 11/02/2016

Today we live in snug, well-furnished houses surrounded by the trappings of a civilised life. But we are not alone - we suffer a constant stream of unwanted visitors. Our houses, our food, our belongings, our very existence are under constant attack from a host of invaders eager to take advantage of our shelter, our food stores and our tasty soft furnishings. From bats in the belfry to beetles in the cellar, moths in the wardrobe and mosquitoes in the bedroom, humans cannot escape the attentions of the animal kingdom. Nature may be red in tooth and claw, but when it's our blood the bedbugs are after, when it's our cereal bowl that's littered with mouse droppings, and when it's our favourite chair that collapses due to woodworm in the legs, it really brings it home the fact that we and our homes are part of nature too. This book represents a 21st century version of the classic Mediaeval bestiary. It poses questions such as where these animals came from, can we live with them, can we get rid of them, and should we? Written in Richard Jones's engaging style and with a funky-retro design, House Guests, House Pests will be a book to treasure.

The Medieval Natural World

The Medieval Natural World

Author: Richard Jones Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/02/2016

How did medieval people make sense of their surroundings, and how did this change over the years as understanding and knowledge expanded? This new Seminar Study is designed to familiarise students of medieval history with the ways in which medieval people interpreted the world around them - how they rationalised their observations, and why they developed the models for understanding that they did. Most importantly, it shows how ideas changed over the medieval period, and why. With extensive primary source material, this book builds up a picture using medieval encyclopedias, prose literature and poetry, records of estate management, agricultural treatises, scientific works, annals and chronicles, as well as the evidence from art, architecture, archaeology and the landscape itself. An excellent introduction for undergraduate students of Medieval history, or for anyone with an interest in the medieval natural world.

Punishment

Punishment

Author: Richard Jones Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/06/2015

A thorny question faced by all civilized societies is what to do when people commit crime, and, in particular, how criminals are to be punished. Yet the nature of punishment, its justifications, aims, and effects has varied markedly throughout history and across-and within-cultures. These matters continue to be vigorously debated and frequently give rise to sharp divisions along lines of morality, politics, faith, and effectiveness. This vital new Routledge collection now brings together the major works on punishment, a central, important, and fascinating area of study, not just for the modern field of criminology but also for lawyers, philosophers, and thinkers in related disciplines. This four-volume `mini library' enables users to consult influential texts, both old and new, and to trace the development of this important area of research and study. Topics covered include: philosophical debates on punishment; sociological theories of punishment; international comparative research; historical perspectives; prisons; rehabilitation; fines; the death penalty; community penalties; restorative justice; the electronic monitoring of offenders; penal populism; punishment and human rights; and recent international developments in punishing and crime-handling. The gathered materials have been carefully selected by the learned editors to offer a definitive overview of punishment, and a newly written introduction places the texts in their historical and thematic context, allowing users not merely to become familiar with penal topics, but also to understand the key questions that have animated scholarly research, both historically and today.

Uncovering Jack the Ripper's London

Uncovering Jack the Ripper's London

Author: Richard Jones Format: Paperback Release Date: 05/11/2013

The crimes of Jack the Ripper have gone down in history as some of the most brutal and violent ever committed. These horrendous acts of serial murder confounded the police at the time, and the mystery of the Ripper's identity remains unsolved to this day. In addition to the sense of fear and panic the murders brought to the London streets of the late 1880s, they also shed a harsh light on the impoverished and dangerous conditions of the East End and brought numerous tensions to boiling point. In this new edition, the book examines the wider context of the murders, taking into account the social conditions against which they were committed, the animosity between police and press, the instances of anti-Semitism and the physical geography of the area now and then. Providing detailed analysis of the attacks and the investigation, the book also considers acts committed before and after that could also have been the work of the same person. Featuring previously unpublished documents and photographs, this book is a must for all Jack the Ripper enthusiasts. It is perfect for all those Ripperologists out there or those with an interest in area of True Crime or Victorian history. It is also the perfect book for any of the many thousands of people who visit the scene of the crime on organised walks each year.

Manure Matters Historical, Archaeological and Ethnographic Perspectives

Manure Matters Historical, Archaeological and Ethnographic Perspectives

Author: Richard Jones Format: Hardback Release Date: 16/04/2012

In pre-industrial societies, in which the majority of the population lived directly off the land, few issues were more important than the maintenance of soil fertility. Without access to biodegradable wastes from production processes or to synthetic agrochemicals, early farmers continuously developed strategies aimed at adding nutritional value to their fields using locally available natural materials. Manure really mattered, its collection/creation, storage, and spreading becoming major preoccupations for all agriculturalists no matter what environment they worked or at what period. This book brings together the work of a group of international scholars working on social, cultural, and economic issues relating to past manure and manuring. Contributors use textual, linguistic, archaeological, scientific and ethnographic evidence as the basis for their analyses. The scope of the papers is temporally and geographically broad; they span the Neolithic through to the modern period and cover studies from the Middle East, Britain and Atlantic Europe, and India. Together they allow us to explore the signatures that manure and manuring have left behind, and the vast range of attitudes that have surrounded both substance and activity in the past and present.

Information Technology and Traditional Legal Concepts

Information Technology and Traditional Legal Concepts

Author: Richard Jones Format: Hardback Release Date: 10/11/2010

Information technology has served to revolutionise the use, exchange, and protection of information. The growth of the internet, the convergence of technologies as well as the development of user generated and social networking sites has meant that significant amounts of person data as well as copyrighted materials are now readily accessible. Within this changing cultural landscape the legal concepts of privacy, data protection, intellectual property and criminality have necessarily had to develop and adapt. In this volume a number of international scholars consider this process and whether it has merely been a question of the law adapting to technology or whether technology has been forced to adapt to law. Technologies have wrought a culture shift it is therefore apposite to ask whether legal concepts, as reflections of culture, should also change. It is in this volume where papers on privacy date protection, intellectual protection and cyber crime begin address this question. This book was published as a special issue of International review of Law Computers and Technology.

Exiles and Kings The African Imprint on English Cricket

Exiles and Kings The African Imprint on English Cricket

Author: Richard Jones Format: Hardback Release Date: 08/05/2008

Basil D'Oliveira's selection for the tour of his homeland in 1968 set in train a sequence of events that would ultimately lead to South Africa's exile from international sport for over twenty years. Ironically, this enforced separation would draw the cricketing nations of England and South Africa together into a close relationship. A generation of world-class players, lost to Test cricket, found their place in the English counties; as the years in exile became decades some chose to pursue their international ambitions in the colours of their adopted country. At the same time, English players were heading in the opposite direction, risking censure and exile, as members of rebel touring parties. Exiles and Kings examines the modern history of English cricket through the lens of this complex and, at times, uneasy relationship, examining the impact made by a number of players from the African cricketing nations. From the traumas of the late summer of 1968, through the years of exile and rebellion, to the redemption delivered by another South African batsman at The Oval in 2005, Exiles and Kings demonstrates that the African imprint on English cricket is clear and indelible.

Medieval Villages in an English Landscape Beginnings and Ends

Author: Richard Jones, Mark Page Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/12/2006

The village - one of the keystones of the English rural landscape - has a powerful hold on the imagination. The origin of nucleated and dispersed settlements - the countryside of villages and the countryside of hamlets - has since become a central concern of landscape historians. This book directly addresses this central problem. The end-result of a 5 year project which has explored a group of 12 parishes on the Buckinghamshire-Northamptonshire boundary where elements of these two landscapes lie side by side, it looks at the reasons for fundamental changes in landscape that occurred in the parish of Whittlewood between AD 800 - 1400. Changes in how the land was perceived, divided, organised and exploited are examined to reveal the testimony of medieval villagers and answer the pressing question: Why did different communities develop different forms of communal living?

This five-volume graded anthology acts as an introduction to the flute music of the early- and mid-eighteenth century. All important composers of flute music of the period are represented, starting with the French pioneers La Barre and Hotteterre, and culminating in the great Germans Handel and Bach. Texts faithfully follow the original sources, any editorial additions being carefully differentiated as such. These marks, which include ornament realizations and breathing suggestions, together with the editorial notes that accompany each piece, are designed to help the progressing flautist to cultivate an authentic playing style. In addition, useful information is given about the composers represented and about the pieces selected and the sources from which they are drawn. A separate continuo part is provided, allowing the bass line to be doubled on cello or viola da gamba, in accordance with standard continuo practice. This part, in which the bass is figured, may also be used by keyboard players who wish to improvise their own accompaniment.

Of the three known compositions of Richard Jones, who was leader of the orchestra at the Drury Lane Theatre in London, only one is devoted to keyboard music: Suits or setts of Lessons for the Harpsichord or Spinnet, published about 1732. The various pieces from these suites, which have been selected for this album of moderate difficulty, are particularly tuneful and also provide an invaluable compendium of 18th-century dance forms and rhythms.
